So today was one of those days that I am reminded of how much God has done for me in the past ten years. I have said it before and I'll say it again..... Our lives don't fall apart, our plans fall
Apart! His plan is always better. I use to look at some people and think wow! It must be nice to live such a life free of work and worry. Yea my plan was to be a stay at home mom. (Clearly not His) But honestly no one lives a life like that. Everyone is fighting some battle. Everyone has some form of struggle and it doesn't make mine any worse or any better, but I know this ...whatever the struggle, whatever the hold up, whatever is keeping you up at night, or keeping you down, whatever battle you are fighting, God is there! And I've learned to see the battle as a privilege. Bring him into your battle and you will see the privilege too. It's his way to show you he is there to draw you near. All my battles have shown me grace and given me a huge sense of gratitude. The closer I am to him, the shorter and less frequent the Battles. Today I don't have a life completely free of worry, and I still have to work, but The key was to accept that it's his will not mine, his plan not mine, and I know whatever struggle or "battle" I face I've got him to get me through. Plus I really love his plans far more than what mine were. I am truly blessed beyond measure.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
